Lancaster Gunners “Hotting-up”

The Feature for October 2022, published on our new website, is LANCASTER GUNNERS “HOTTING UP”

It shows details from a fabulous charcoal drawing of Lancaster gunners preparing for a raid on Berlin in December 1943, which was published in The Illustrated London News on 18 December 1943. The double-page spread was drawn by Captain Bryan de Grineau, a war artist who had fought in the First World War and was 60 years of age at the time of making the drawing.
